Monday Music #4
Today’s music is yet another soundtrack. I’m a huge fan of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s work. Their work is remarkable. The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl are a few of the movies (that I know of) that they’ve composed scores for and each soundtrack is distinctly unique and matches the mood set by director David Fincher (a personal favorite director of mine). There music tends to be of the “dark and ominous” genre but as a soundtrack lover, they’re dynamic and extremely creative about achieving the tone or mood that needs to be subconsciously injected into the audiences psyche. Their music + Fincher’s direction = great films with amazing soundtracks. It’s a phenomenal trio of talent and I can’t recommend their works enough. While the films are definitely considered mainstream, the soundtrack by itself I would not argue being as popular or palatable by the masses by any stretch of the imagination. But if you love soundtracks, Reznor and Ross’s works are a must have.
This track, In Motion is one of the more popular tracks on the The Social Network soundtrack. It’s got some catchy layering and it’s great to listen to if you’re trying to get charged up to do something intense. I could go on and on but listen for yourself.
